This book was about a teenage couple( I think) that were part of this farm community. They were actually in a spaceship sent to re-colonize, but the crew had died and no one in the community was aware of their situation. The couple went on this picnic one day up in the hills and the boy touched the sky, found a hatch and discovered their predicament. That's all I remember about the book, I would like to read it again. Any ideas? Thanks

Sounds very much like the first chapters of Non-Stop (http://www.sfsite.com/12a/ns94.htm), by Brian Aldiss. Very good book indeed.
